MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP/MyFoxBoston.com) — Authorities have identified a woman shot to death in Middleborough, as well as a man police shot when they responded to help her.

The Plymouth District Attorney's office says 65-year-old Norma DesRoche died after she was found at her home Thursday with an apparent gunshot wound to the chest.

And they say the man they injured in her driveway is 52-year-old Thomas Buttimer. Police shot Buttimer after he allegedly pointed a firearm at officers who'd come to assist DesRoche.

In a press release, the DA said Buttimer had been staying at DesRoche's house, but gave no further details.

Buttimer will be arraigned Tuesday in Wareham District Court on charges of assault with intent to murder a police officer and illegal possession of a firearm.
